30 Year Tradition Lives On in Harrah
By Amy Lester, NEWS 9
OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma family's 30 year tradition almost ruined by severe weather will not end this year.
The Nowakowski's in Harrah thought they'd lost their sweet corn crop in last week's storms. The storms took out about half of their crop, but that's not as bad as they expected.
"We're trying to salvage our crop and it looks good. We grate it really hard so you're not going to get a bunch of trash," said sweet corn farmer Gregory Nowakowski.
The corn is now on sale at the farm, and people all over the state travel to Harrah for the Nowakowski family's sweet corn. Many have said they swear by it, raving about the flavor of their favorite corn.
"It's just sweet and fresh, it's always really good," said customer Dayna Straube.
Nowakowski said it's much better than anything you'll find in the grocery store, and he said invites anyone to challenge that.
The Nowakowski farm is on Northeast 36th and Luther Road and will sell corn through Friday. A bag of corn costs $8.
